Received this e-mail today from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee:
Today, we're releasing a new poll showing that a bold progressive Bernie Sanders supporter is DEFEATING a right-wing Congressman in KANSAS!
With our friends at Bernie's group, Our Revolution, we are proud to endorse Brent Welder for Congress!
Imagine election night if we win. Pundits will scratch their heads and have to acknowledge that Democrats win the heartland when they run as inspiring progressives. Can you donate $3 to Brent's campaign to make it happen?
Brent is a labor lawyer and workers' rights advocate who was appointed by Bernie to be one of his delegates on the official DNC platform committee in 2016, which advanced the most progressive platform ever.
Brent supports Medicare For All, expanding Social Security, debt-free college, taking on Wall Street and Big Pharma, creating millions of good-paying jobs with a real infrastructure plan, and reversing the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy.
Brent impressed us tremendously at our Advanced Candidate Training last week. He led a protest outside the Republican National Committee of Trump's infrastructure scam -- and delivered nearly 100,000 petition signatures directly to Paul Ryan's office with other candidates!
Our new poll shows Brent defeating Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder by 7 points -- 49% to 42%. That means national Republicans will attack him, and he'll need our support...starting right now.
Can you donate $3 or more to Brent Welder's inspiring campaign -- and help progressives flip a red congressional seat blue in KANSAS?
This is a district that many political insiders are ignoring, even though Hillary Clinton won this district by 2 points and Democrats saw a 27 point swing in a special congressional election last year!
We can win this. And we will win this by running on our values.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
